Photo: Bear Goes on Short Joy Ride in Boulder County


This bear in Boulder County broke into an unlocked car and then "buttshifted" the car into neutral sending the car down the hill for about 100 feet. The bear, thankfully is ok but the car is now undrivable.

From the Boulder County Sheriff's Office:

Here’s a good reminder to keep your car doors locked, especially in bear country.

Last night a delinquent bear pulled open an unlocked driver's door and climbed in, and of course, the door closed behind it. The bear worked on digging out through all 4 doors, but apparently butt-shifted the car into neutral. The car rolled back and off the driveway and about 100 ft down the hill. The four legged suspect swiped a tree, rendering the car undrivable, but in the process popped a door open, and fled on foot... er, on paws in an unknown direction.
